Not many — if anyone at all — saw the Red Sox bringing infielders Travis Shaw or José Iglesias back in for a playoff push.
But when the club needed more depth at first base amid a slump, Boston claimed Shaw off waivers. After a COVID-19 outbreak ravished the roster a few weeks later, the Red Sox needed reinforcements again and picked up Iglesias the same way.
Now, as relayed in a story by MassLive’s Chris Cotillo, both players are back to take care of some unfinished business.
“This is home for me,” Iglesias said, via MassLive. “This is where I want to win. It’s very organic for me to fight for this organization, to fight for this team. I love the guys. I love everybody here. I love this organization so I’m extremely happy to go out there and give everything I’ve got for this team on a daily basis.”
